in the pacific. not just about china, but about some of the intraasian problem that is we're seeing. and if you can doing what our economists at aei absolutely revile, link it back to some of of the, you know, economic questions that we face and the prosperity that we've gotten used to up to a point? >> thanks. well, first,ing now you know how asia feels in these discussions, always sort of last, and when attention comes, it's sort of quick. [laughter] >> this is why you grew a beard. >> exactly. let me, let me mention three things. that i think will be on the radar that we should be aware of. and then link it, actually, back to the broader discussion, what dani asked about the economics. um, so, you know, if tom was talking about the immediate game and fred was talking about the short-term game, asia sees itself as the long-term game. and they sue -- they view what's going on there in those terms. of it's not something that -- well, whatever i'm about to mention, they don't think it's going to be resolved tomorrow. they don't think that the trends they're dealing with are at any point in time
efforts to resolve energy disputes from the south china sea to the eastern mediterranean. this has been helped significantly by the increase in our own domestic production. as iranian oil has gone offline, other oil has gone online. levers of power and values we cannot afford to ignore. universal rights exist. governments are obligated to protect them. we're at the front lines of today's emerging battles like the fight to defend the communities and religious minorities wherever and whoever they are. virtually every country that threatens peace is a place where the rule of law is weak. places where women and girls are treated as second class human beings. just ask a woman from pakistan. as the women who can no longer go to school. the woman in the congo endure rape. the jury is in. if women and girls everywhere were treated as equal to men in rights and opportunities, we would see political and economic progress everywhere. this is not only a moral issue. it is and economic issue and the unfinished business of the 21st century. one of the first things i did was to elevate the office of g
to touch someone quickly. this also is necessary in the western pacific where china, for example, has 80 sub marines just to our 50. even john mccain who was quite critical in the hearing said this nomination should go through. >> right. >> well, yeah. on that point, it looks like the nomination will be confirmed. the problem is it loonlgs like there's a filibuster or attempt at a filibuster and that means democrats and the white house have to come up with 60 votes to get this through. mccain has indicated to break a filibuster. looks like they would have the votes to do that. do you think we have sort of crossed a line here, bad precedent set for future cabinet nominations? never before has there been a filibuster of a defense secretary nominee. only two rejected since 1959. nobody tried to filibuster one in that time. are we creating bad precedent? >> why the senate has the right as a senator said who is supporting senator hagel to do a filibuster. i think it would set a bad precedent because as many people often very conservative have said in this particular case, the president has th
. joining us now is the author of "china airborne" and the national correspondent of the atlantic, james fallows. good afternoon, james. >> thank you for coming on. the chinese came out today and strongly denied all of these allegations. should they be believed? is this just a case of threat inflation as we like to call it? >> the chinese statement was in keeping with its government's usual response to accusations like this. they said that they never have endorsed hacking of anybody else, they resolutely enforce their laws. there's no violation of privacy laws in china. i think that's difficult to take seriously. i think the main point here is that for decades, for more than a decade now, there have been increasing both government and corporate concerns in the u.s. about hacking from a lot of places, including china, and the news in this latest report is tying it more specifically to the chinese military than had been done in the previous encounters. >> now, they appear to have targeted companies like facebook, apple, twitter and google among others. isn't this an indication that they we
time zeroed in not just on china, but a particular building in shanghai, which is believed to house a unit, a top elite unit of the chinese army. >> i think the difference in the long report that we published in "the times" yesterday, which was based on what they did, then we went off on other security firms to see if we could confirm their findings, and we did. was that for the first time these attacks that the chinese have largely denied are coming out of the government have been taken right down to a neighborhood that's dominated by the headquarters of this unit 61398. it's the cyber unit, a major cyber unit, of the people's liberation army. and the element of surprise here is how much is coming either out of that building or you've got to believe out of the noodle shops surrounding that building, given the volume, it's hard to believe -- >> we're talking about thousands of cyber attacks against at least 141 companies, 27 industries, at least according to this one report that officials have confirmed for both you and me. >> that's right. and this was just following one major chin
of cyber attacks from china. i have never seen so much public conversation about this. there's the new report that suggested for the first time that it was not just china generically, but china and this particular unit, an elite unit, of the military. >> what we've seen over the past two weeks is really an explosion of press around the cyber security issue, and i frankly think that's a very good thing because what people on the inside and people in corporate america have seen over the past couple of years is an absolute explosion of theft the u.s. corporate secrets and intellectual property by the chinese made public, as you said, this week, at least some of that by the people's liberation army. what some in the u.s. intelligence community have termed the largest transfer of wealth many history as the chinese have taken the sensitive economic secrets from the u.s. and then put them to use for chinese economic purposes. that has -- those reports along with presidential activity and the issuing of the executive order to try to strengthen u.s. sovereign defenses, those are early steps, bu
, and china has one carrier, that is from the ukrainian navy. i don't know how good they feel about serving in this aircraft carrier, that is exactly what they had. we have over 200 bases and facilities, china has nothing outside of china itself. .. the kid saved a couple hundred billion dollars over the next ten years by reducing that to reasonable 360,000 soldiers. so there are just some of the things that could be done that could get you to that trillion dollars figure that people say would really disarmed the united states. no, it wouldn't. now, 4,807,000,000,000 has already been agreed to by the senate and house of the next ten years of sequestration that would involve another 4,902,000,000,000 which would get you close to trillion, but there won't be a sequestration. so that kind of cutback we will see, and we don't see anyone in the pentagon really working toward this. leon panetta has never really asked for it. so this creates a serious problem. now, demilitarization is a more important issue because what we have done is militarize the entire national security process i have a chapt
on this group. it is one of 20 groups we trace back to china origins amongst other groups that we follow. but in the report, we lay out you know, 60 pages of detailed findings. it is very data thick and analysis thick over 3,000 digital indicators to help detect and find the threats. in the report, we build up the case for why we believe that this is traced back to the pla the people's liberation army inside of china in particular inside of their third department second bureau which is a unit we call -- a unit that is called 61398. >> bill: in addition to the "new york times," who else were they targeting? >> they've targeted a lot. we found -- again we've been investigating this for six years. along with other victim -- other attacks. but with this group in particular they've compromised over 141 victims over six years that we had visibility into. what's really interesting is it spanned over 20 different industries. we had victims from public affairs to construction, aerospace education legal engineering, electronics i.t., the list goes on and on. >> bill: big names right? i've seen blo
the united states army. he serves the -- the army sends him to china. he wants to see asia. it is not the first time the military service lies to an enlistee -- he does not go. he goes across the street to the marine corps, says, will you send me to china? the sergeant says, we will send you to china. after china, he goes and serves -- he comes back at the age of 20. he has served honorably in all branches of the united states military. there is no air force at the time. comes back and falls in love with a woman in his hometown in montana who says, i will have nothing to do with you until you finish school. he finishes high school and goes on to be a professor of asian history at the university of montana and is elected to the congress of the united states. united states ambassador to japan under president carter and president reagan. when he dies, written on his tombstone at arlington tom at his request, is michael joseph mansfield, born march 16, 1903, died october 5, 2001 -- drive it, united states marine corps. no leader, no and that -- majority leader, ambassador to ja
's the headquarters of unit 61398. >> i think it was time to let the world know, it's actually not just from china, it's the chinese government sanctioning these attacks. >> reporter: among the targets, america's very infrastructure. >> now our enemies are sabotaging our power grid, our financial institutions, our air traffic control systems. >> reporter: other targets of chinese hackers familiar brand names like coca-cola, facebook, "the new york times," on "wash post" and "wall street journal." and only today, apple. the hackers have user names like ugly gorilla and dota. according to this instructional video from mandiant. >> here we see dota logging into one of his operational e-mail accounts. he's used it for spear phishing and generating additional accounts. >> reporter: what is it? how hackers campaign access into a network by sending deceptive e-mails tricking users into clicking on a malicious link to a phony website. once the victims provide passwords, pnc.i.n. numbers, they're in. sometimes for years with no one noticing. >> when these companies are engaging in business with china, they're
. clearly there differences of opinion twebetween us and china. he wants to play the role of diplomat and find a way forward with the chinese without confronting the military. i think that's something the obama administration more broad lie believes in. >> he will be leaving on that trip on february 24th through march 6th. a big wide swath for secretary kerry whoa will be marking his mark to start. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >> we are following breaking news any moment now. the wife of jesse jackson junior will enter a guilty plea to federal tax fraud charges stemming from her husband's misuse of funds. the former congressman entered with his wife before entering his own guilty plea. after that hearing, jackson asked reporters to tell everyone he is sorry. he could be facing several years in prison. the justice correspondent joins me now. this was not a big surprise that we saw this morning. explain what comes next for the congressman as well as his wife. >> he wife will be pleading guilty in a few minutes. they just walked into court holding hands we are told by our producer. jac
major ally china condemned the underground test in an emergency meeting and considering further sanctions. >> countries around the world including every member of this security council agree that this test was an extremely regrettable act, that further undermines international peace and security. >> nbc news pentagon krontd jim miklaszewski joins us live. we just got a note secretary kerry was informed just before 11:00 p.m. yesterday and he is also spoken with the chinese foreign minister wels japan foreign minister on this issue. what are we likely to hear and see next? >> reporter: the focus is on china. even though china may have joined in condemning the act, the proof is in the pudding. they will have to step up and actually join in enforcing stricter, tighter sanctions against north korea. all this time, while the international community particularly the u.s. has been ratcheting up those sanctions against north korea, china has continued to provide oil and other critical supplies to north korea ignoring the international sanctions. so it really falls on china at this point
. the seeber attacks. i know you know china very well. how tough should the president be? is it time to start really putting this front and center? >> we have to put it front and center. not just with china where, with russia wra. this notion that somehow china will be involved. we have allies that are doing the same thing, and we've been doing it for years. stealing our secrets, intellectual property, so it's been going on, and i think we have to take an aggressive position on this, and i think the president by setting up this command, cyber command, saying we have to defend our infrastructure, and the pentagon's infrastructure to be sure, and then we have to have capability. those kinds will help deter some of the activities taking place right now. >> i remember once interviewing a former french official who was in charge of the french intelligence operation against our splekt wal property and trade secrets, and he was very open about it as a retired espionage agent for france. thank you very much, bill cohen. >> good to be with you. >> up neck, fighting that cyber war, we talk to former ho
. >> the white house encouraged, martha, by the response of china to that north korean nuclear test. they believe china willing to crack down a little harder now? >> well, i think the response was somewhat muted from china, i think they expected more. they condemned the test. china tried to talk north korea out of testing a nuclear weapon but they did it. but they didn't really threaten them with any action but believe me, president obama would like to get china, china's help in this issue. >> so, tell us, again, matt, how much can the president get done tonight? how much could he put concerted pressure on this room? >> i think it's really interesting, because in terms of second term presidents, they understand that political capital is a diminishing resource. they know that two key pillars for that political capital are his inaugural address and state of the union address. those are the two most important things he can do to keep momentum moving. if he starts to lose it, it's very difficult for him to do it. that's why this speech and the inaugural, they always look at them like a package, put t
with russia. a more powerful and emboldened china. an iran closer to a nuclear weapon, slark terrorists fans out across north america? simply put, under barack obama and hillary clinton, the u.s. has been unwilling to lead. and this has left a huge vacuum on the world stage. in a recent assessment of secretary clinton's tenure. michael owe o'hanlon of the brookings institute wrote even an admirers such as myself must admit few big problems were soflted on her watch. few big vic trises achieved. secretary clinton's work at the state department should be judged on whether she has left america's foreign policy in stronger or weaker position. most think the future lies with china than the u.s. it's not all mrs. clinton's fault. but the fact is we just don't have the influence we used to have around the world from syria to mali, we have led from behind, so in effect the former secretary of state has helped manage our decline in what looks increasingly like a post american world. and that's the memo. now on to the top story. another view on this, joining us now from new york, fox news contributor
shock when he saw with the final cost will be. 11 aircraft carriers and task force china has one carrier and that is from the ukraine navy i don't know how they feel about serving on this aircraft carrier but that is what they have. they have over 200 bases and facilities nothing outside of china itself. the marines are larger and more powerful than the british military. when is the last time they conducted the landing the degette a lot of their support for? 1951, the courier and war that they had, they were talking about an expeditionary fighting vehicle. they are getting enough 35 and that is another thing about what we do. every service has its own air force so in addition, you have the army, the navy, the marine corps that has their own capability in terms of the air force. finally, you have the army structure at 547,000. you could save a couple hundred billion dollars over the next ten years by reducing that to a reasonable 360,000. so those are just some of the things that could be done that could get you to the trillion dollar figure that some people would say would disarm the uni
the south china sea to the eastern mediterranean to keep the world's energy market stable. now this has been helped quite significantly by the increase in our own domestic production. it's no accident that is as the iranian oil has gone off-line because of our sanctions other sources have come on line so iran cannot in a fit from increased prices. then there is human rights and our support for democracy and the rule of law. levers of power and values we cannot afford to ignore. in the last century the united states where it led the world in recognizing universal rights exist and that governments are obligated to protect them. now we have placed ourselves at the frontline of today's emerging battle like the fight to defend the human rights of the lgbt communities around the world and religious minorities wherever and whoever they are. but it not a coincidence that virtually every country that threatens regional and global peace is a place where human rights are in peril or the rule of law as we. more specifically places where women and girls are treated as second-class marginal human beings.
that he is going to try to live up to his father's policies, rather than any kind of compromise. china not indicating yet whether -- we don't have many options if china doesn't join in terms of tougher sanctions. now from what we know at least, this was a much larger blast, and they claim we can't prove it. they claim it was a smaller device. it could mean they've made real progress on miniatureization of a warhead. >> this is very worrisome from a number of perspectives. it's certainly a provocation. i think many believe it's meant to consolidate this new young leader's power inside north korea. it puts owes a very negative trajectory. i think it's imperative that the international community does have a strong response. as you said, china is critical. china holds a lot of the cards with regard to shaping north korea's behavior and their response. >> we sent up aircraft with sensors to try to determine whether this was a uranium-fueled blast or plutonium. plutonium is the old way. uranium would be more worrying because it would increase the likelihood that they would be proliferate and
that it will consider fines and other trade actions against china or any other country guilty of cyber espionage. we will continue to follow that story and bring you any remarks that may come out from administration officials today. the supreme court is expected to hear arguments in late march in two prominent cases that could test the bounds of laws restricting gay marriage. authors of "recently released book some day marriage recently debated the issue at harvard university. it is and about how to by the federalist society at harvard. this is one hour. >> thank you. richard fallon is the junior professor of constitutional law at harvard law school. he also earned a ba degree from oxford university, where he was a rhodes scholar. he served as a law clerk to justices of the united states supreme court and has written extensively about constitutional and federal courts law. he is the author of several books. we are very grateful for him for participating. andrew koppelman is the john paul stevens professor of law at northwestern university. he received his bachelor's from the university of chicago an

to engage in dialogue. how realistic is that when you have them even snubbing china, one of their allies? >> one of the things you learn about north korea is not to be predictable. you don't know what they're going to do next. they don't think the way we do. what i think we need to do is find a new way for the countries in the region and the united states to deal with them. i think first they have to pay. there has to be payback for these tests. that means more sanctions, south korea tightening their belt. but china is the key. and china up till now has not wanted to put the screws on north korea. they could affect their food, their fuel. they have leverage over them. but i don't think they're ready to exercise it. hopefully this new test will do that. but if that's not the case, i think we need a dialogue with the north korean leadership, we being the six-party country, south korea and the u.s. isolating them has to be part of a policy. but then what next? and i'm hopeful that senator kerry who has a record of negotiation and diplomacy will look at this and say, hey, we need a new appro
and responsibility? or should perhaps be beijing? what is china doing? >> that's right. we have outsourced that to china. we have said, china provides 75% of the north korea's food, fuel oil, heating fuel. let the chinese deal with it. and the chinese have not. they maybe make a statement or two, north korea, shouldn't do this. but they have not stopped north korea. in fact we've seen this week, china is feeling so emboldened it is hacking into every computer in north america. bill: there is a statement also, as the saying this from north korea. as the saying goes a newborn puppy knows no fear of a tying. i read two things into that. either a new leader, kim jong-un or more of a statement, almost as, maybe a poetic language to say we are the newborn puppy as a nuclear power, that the world now has to address. your view? >> it could go either way. could be the newborn puppy is the new young leader of north korea. doesn't know any fear. doesn't know any bounds. it could be we, north korea, we're the tiger. we got the nukes. you guys should fear us. the problem this is heating up to a boil. i
. extra communism of china is communism in name only and these days and it basically preserved the power of the countries, but they through the ideology aside. communism in china talks about marxism, etc., but it is all about preserving the country's power economically as the country continues to grow because they threw aside most the stages of communism a long time ago. in north korea, it is all about preserving the power of the military and the dynasty that you have there, and it has nothing to do with what karl marx envisioned. somebody could do a fascinating book on how one communism diverged into asia was something different than what appeared in europe and the eastern european countries. >> former washington post correspondent and harvard fellow keith richburg on 30 years of reporting and insight from around the world sunday on c-span's "q&a." >> if blockades are the strategy of the north states, the principal strategy is economic aid. if you caught a emerging ship, the idea was to put a prize crew on board, take it to a be adjudicated, sell it at cost and actual auction, and you g
collar workers, i mean unions as far as industrial are pretty much dead. you move your plants to china and mexico. host: patrick rice, your response to what he had to say. guest: if he's arguing we're on the brink of a social revolution, it would seem to me that, i can't see in the future and i don't want to say he's wrong, but we've been endured tougher economic situations in the past without peel launching a full-scale revolution. now if he's saying that we're looking at an economic downturn, i think there are a lot of economists who agree. we could be seeing an economy where essentially the wealth disparity rises. we have a smaller group who are taking home a lot of benefits of the economy and a very large group who are seeing very little of it. that's something a lot of economists are worried about. and so, i think the question going forward will be is that something that the federal combovement wants to address, -- is that something the federal government wants to address. or is it the dominant, american philosophy that the economy will play out as it may, they end up where they e
to protect the u.s. from devastating cyber attacks, and china considered one of the biggest offenders. the cyber security company, of course, has been saying it's identified a hacking group in shanghai with ties to china's military and says it watched those hackers systematically steal information from more than 140 companies. china denying any involvement. >>> and police still have no clue who managed to pull off a daring heist at the brussels airport. thieves managed to steal $50 million worth of diamonds from a plane on the tarmac. on monday night, two cars burst through the perimeter fence, the airport, sped towards the plane. authorities say the men were wearing police uniforms and were heavily armed. they were in and out of the airport within minutes. it is cnn's top international news story today. >>> of course, we are talking about the olympic star pistorius. everybody is following this. everybody is talking about this. it is really quite amazing. another night we're going to spend in jail. we don't know the outcome, whether he's going to be released on bail. this is playing o
not to do. does china now do the ultimate and take really strong sanction measures against their assets? >> right. this is the big question is where is china's red line, and one hopes that it was crossed this time. in addition to all the things you mentioned, andrea, the other thing is that the north koreans did this on chinese new year. in my experience in six-party talks the time that the chinese got the most emotional was when the north koreans were doing things that then pushed that into working during the chinese new year holiday, which is a big holiday in china. i imagine they're pretty upset right now. >> this is what susan rice had to say today. >> north korea's continued work on its nuclear and missile programs seriously undermines regional and international peace and security and threatens the security of a number of countries, including the united states. >> now, you've got the south korean inaugural on february 25th. the state of the union tonight, as you point out the chinese new year, and there's another problem. we don't know yet whether this was plutonium device, which i
that the intelligence community now believes the u.s. is a target of a major cyber espionage campaign, with china as its most aggressive perpetrator, seeking to steal data for economic gain. to counter these efforts, president obama announced a new initiative. >> i signed a new executive order that will strengthen our cyber defenses by increasing information sharing and developing standards to protect our national security, our jobs, and our privacy. >> suarez: the national cyber- security and communications integration center is in northern virginia. it's the department of homeland security's premiere cyber-space monitoring facility. this command center receives information from companies like at&t and verizon, and watches over the government's information networks. lawrence zelvin, the center's director, says the president's order will make it easier to combat cyber threats. >> the attacks should be measured in seconds, not days. the attacks are ever present and ongoing, and as i said, there's a variety of motivations-- criminal, nation-state, malicious, humorous. the attacks are happening in seconds.
